Why do you feel the need to burn the bridges that got you to were you are (not really talking about Kruse)? This baffles me about the community at large. Nobody pays any attention. Most if not all the starch people were low carb for a long period of time first. But that couldn't have anything to do with my current successes! It would just be silly to think that ultimately the things I've done over the past few years dictate where I am right now. No no no it must be that hack I did just last week.

I see lots of folks, I was one, too, who try everything in the book to lose that last 10-20lbs except adding in some healthy carbs (starch).
Like I said in the quote above, I think LC is great for weightloss and breaking free of SAD, and for specific medical problems which should be doctor supervised, but not the best for a long-term diet if you aren't thriving on it.
If someone is LC and thriving, more power to them--they found what works. If they are LC and not thriving, maybe it's time to not be LC.
I just read the EMF-2 post. Given the immediate headache that ensued, I clearly need to kick off my shoes, reconnect, and get the electrons flowing.
His EMF stuff was the last straw for me. It's so obvious he read something like Earthing & Grounding Products | Earth Grounding Kits, Mats, Sheets, Pads & More with all their custom-made studies and tailored it for his followers.
